Re: “Arizona Inn

The Audubon Lounge has a terrace overlooking the cricket lawn, surrounded by colorful flowers. Birds are chirping in the trees. The most relaxing place unless it is more than 110 degrees outside. The prickly pear Margaritas are the best in town, on ice with salted rim, of course. The chilled leek and potato soup, Vichyssoise, is thick, flavorful with a hint of white pepper, perfect for hot weather. The quesadillas with shrimp or chicken come with three different condiments, salsa, sour cream and guacamole and the tacos are as crispy as puff pastry.
The main dining room Sunday's brunch is outstanding, as much Champagne as one wants (medium dry California Champagne is served) and the food is great, a sit down Brunch instead of buffet. Much one concentrates on the food one is eating instead of thinking what to get next from the buffet...very civilized. Take your time and enjoy.

Re: “Acacia Real Food and Cocktails

Love Acacia! I usually sit right by the Philabaum fountain admiring the different colors in the water streaming down...just wonderful. The food is very good, Crab Louis has tender and big, succulent pieces of crab in a light dressing, delicious with a chilled Fetzer Gewurztraminer. Great place to while away a hot afternoon after shopping at St. Philip's plaze. The dining room is more private and less noisy than the Italian place opposite of Acacia...the food is what you expect when you order, no surprises, well prepared, nothing exotic, just simple and elegant. Recommended.

Re: “Café Poca Cosa

Still one of the best places in Tucson. Not as nice as it used to be in the old hotel location, the music has changed, the view is bad, and instead of flowers, plants and artifacts, it is steel, and more streamlined. However, the house margaritas are still great, the salsa freshly made, the carne asada tender and flavorful. I preferred the old lively place with the homemade dressing in wine bottles on each table...but I am glad she is still around and doing her magic in the kitchen. Suzanna showed Tucson a new form of Mexican cooking, without heavy cheeses, guacamole, and nachos; instead she cooks in the Sonoran style and that is light, flavorful, and memorable food. Thank you Suzanna!

Re: “Gandhi

After having spent a good amount of time traveling across India I would like to think of myself as picky when it comes to Indian food. I would say that the vegetarian dishes at Ghandis's are as authentic and delicious as I have had anywhere in the world. I highly recommend the Shahi Panner and the Malai Kofta. Their cream based curries are so good that my friend form Bombay said it tastes her grandma's cooking!!
**I would agree that their buffet is disappointing and not even close to on par with their dinner menu. So don't judge by the Buffet!!

Re: “Bai Thong

I am confident they have the most authentic thai food in town. Unfortunately this place all ways seems empty whenever I visit. This place makes the food at Bangkok cafe seem watered down and tasteless (which it truly is). The only place I think that can compare is Char Thai, but I have begun to prefer Bai Thong's soups (I recommend the Tom Kha Gai), curries (Try the red curry with shrimp) and even their noodle dishes. I would declare Bai Thong the most authentic Thai restaurant in town although the ambiance is not quite there.

Re: “Famous Dave's Legendary Pit Bar-B-Que

Food was excellent. Service was wonderful and I look forward to eating there again. The multiple choices of sauces is enough to please any palate. Would definitely recommend this restaurant, and look forward to eating there again!
Keep up the good work.

Re: “Lindy's on Fourth

Lindy's on Fourth is amazing. Simply put. From the wild menu with very unique named burgers, great service, to the increddibly delicious burgers. Lindy's is a great place to go for lunch, dinner, or on a day where nothing can satisfy your appetite! Lindys is the best place in Tucson to get a burger, hands down!

Re: “OPA!

Every time me and my husband come back to Tucson for a visit, Opa is on our list. The food is fantastic and the service is very personable. One of the best Greek restaurants I've ever been to.

Re: “Mama Louisa's Italian Restaurant

Been going there for 50 years. Joe's special and the sausage meat pizza, way over the top! Chef Alesi was the best, God rest his soul.

Re: “Vero Amore

Classic Neopolitan Pizza Pie, they make their own fresh mozzarella, use quality ingredients and the wood oven delivers a unique rich taste. Tucson is very lucky to have such a pizza parlor, today everywhere you look its thin crust and wood fire oven but this place actually gets it right. Plus great salads!

Re: “Dickey's Barbecue Pit

I love love love the ribs! So juicy and tender! The regular sauce is so succulent and drinkable! (They also have sweet and spicy sauces) I am always treated well at Dickey's and love to get some ice cream after my ribs. I'm glad they are in town!

Re: “Wandaz

Affordable elegance, reasonable prices, outstanding unobtrusive service, high-quality lovingly prepared food, SPOTLESS demonstration kitchen, warm hospitality. ALL of these factors add up to warrant a visit to Harvest Moon Chinese Cuisine in Oro Valley. Please put this restaurant on your "Must Visit" list. You won't be dissapointed, I assure you. Please note: Harvest Moon is moving to "The Marketplace" very near their current location. The target date is end of May, to the first week in June. This is one of those great places that, as you're getting into your car after a wonderful meal you'll already be thinking about "Next time, I'd like to try the...."

Re: “Lovin' Spoonfuls Vegetarian Restaurant

Lovin Spoonfuls is perfect for vegans and non-vegans alike. Vegans can eat comfortably knowing everything on the menu does not contain animal products. Non-Vegans can learn the huge amount of delicious options for dinner other than meat. The atmosphere is very warm and inviting. Peggy, the owner, is almost always there and is very nice. She has always asked how was my dinner.

I normally start out with the Tempura Shrimp, which with one bite makes you forget you are eating fake shrimp. Next they bring my dinner salad, with one of the wonderful homemade Italian, Ranch, Thousand Island, Sesame Dijon or Balsamic Vinaigrette dressings.

It is hard to pick an entrée to describe since I have ate most dishes on the menu. Luckily, you can never go wrong with the special of the day. I have had everything from Beef Burgundy to Fettuccine Alfredo. Most dishes have good portions. However, I always leave room for desert. They make the best Banana Nut Muffins. The only negative review I have for this restaurant is they do not have all their bakery options on a daily basis.

I am guessing the previous comment was making a comment about the different style of restaurant when it comes to ordering your food. You order at the counter and the servers bring you out food to your table. You also have to get your drink refills yourself. I really did not mind this part of the restaurant. They promptly brought the food to your table.

When I came back from my deployments from overseas this restaurant was the first place I ate dinner. This restaurant is one of the places I take visitors to Tucson.

Re: “Hifalutin Rapid Fire Western Grill

This was our first time in Hifalutin. My husband and I went on recommendations from some of our friends. We went on a Thursday night and the place was packed. There was a 20 minute wait. We were surprised that they took reservations. We will know for next time. There was some room at the bar so we decided to have a drink. We were quickly greeted by the bartender. She said that they had the best margaritas. So we gave them a shot. They were refreshing, delicious and packed a punch. No lemonade flavored margaritas here. We sat about 15 minutes later at a small table in the patio warmed with heaters. Glad we were sat outside because the noise level inside was a bit too loud for our likes. We started with the cheese crisp, half beef and half chicken on the servers recommendation. It was a good one. The server also dropped off some delectable little muffins. My husband ordered a filet med-rare and I opted for the tomato basil pasta. His steak was cooked to perfection and was very tender. My tomato basil pasta was flavorful and the perfect size. I would highly recommend this to everyone. Comfortable atmosphere, friendly and knowledgeable staff and fair prices. We can't wait to return.
